It’s likely that I’d be lying to you guys if I said that anything regarding a megapastor shocks me, but it doesn’t.
Several months after standing behind (pause) Bishop Eddie Long and his boy lovin’ allegations, Creflo Dollar has now come under fire for simple battery charges after choking out his daughter.
Creflo Dollar, founder and pastor of World Changers Church International, was arrested early Friday on charges of attacking his 15-year-old daughter.
Dollar was taken into custody at his Fayetteville home and charged with simple battery and cruelty to children.
According to the police report from the Fayette County Sheriff’s Office, Dollar’s daughter called police to say that her father attacked her after they argued about whether the daughter could attend a party.
The report says Dollar choked his daughter, then threw her to the ground, punched her and hit her with his shoe. The responding officer noticed a scratch on the daughter’s neck near her throat; the daughter said her father gave her the scratch during the fight.
When police interviewed Dollar, he said he tried to restrain his daughter when she “became very disrespectful” after he told her she couldn’t go to the party, according to the report. Dollar admitted to spanking his daughter and wrestling her to the floor, but said it was because she hit him.
Somewhere in Georgia, Creflo is seriously hoping that the flock comes back.
